In determining that the use of solar energy "can help reduce the nation's reliance upon imported fuels," Georgia encourages the development of solar-energy systems. Accordingly, under Georgia's Solar Easements Act of 1978, easements may be established to allow owners of solar-energy systems to negotiate for assurance of continued access to sunlight. Any easement must be created in writing and is subject to the same requirements as all other legal easements. The easement must contain:

  • A description of the airspace affected by the easement
  • Any terms and/or conditions under which the easement is granted or will be terminated
